This Epic Museum In Wyoming Feels Like A Real-Life Jurassic Park

If you’re the adventuresome type who would jump at the chance to take a tour of Jurassic Park, Wyoming has the next best thing. When nature began revealing the treasure-trove of dinosaur bones hidden in the mountains near Thermopolis, the logical thing to do was to reassemble the skeletons and build a museum around them. With hundreds of displays and more than 30 mounted skeletons of actual dinosaurs, the Wyoming Dinosaur Center is as close to an amusement park filled with prehistoric creatures as you can get.
